Real Madrid have announced that Cristiano Ronaldo has agreed a new, five-year contract with the club.
Marca reported on Saturday that confirmation of Ronaldo’s new Madrid deal was imminent, and it has come just hours after Los Blancos’ 3-0 win against Leganes, in which the 31-year-old took part.
“The official event for the renewal of Cristiano Ronaldo's contract will take place tomorrow, Monday 7 November at 1:30pm [CET] in the presidential box at the Santiago Bernabeu stadium,” read a statement on Madrid’s official website.
“The Portuguese forward will extend his contract until 30 June 2021 at the event attended by club President Florentino Perez and the player himself.”
Ronaldo joined Madrid from Manchester United in 2009 for a then-world-record €94m and has gone on to become arguably the greatest player in their history, winning one La Liga, two Copa del Reys and two Champions Leagues.
His 371 goals in 360 appearances have also seen him score over 50 times in all-but-one of his Merengues seasons, barring the incumbent, and have been worthy of two FIFA Ballon d’Ors in 2013 and 2014.
